Allspice$5.00 – $18.00
Native to Jamaica, this “new” spice made an appearance in European and Mediterranean dishes in the 16th century. It smells like a combination of Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Cloves and Pepper, so the English coined it “Allspice.” Our allspice is stored in a climate-controlled, oxygen-depleted environment before milling to maximize the retention of essential oils. This locks in the strongest flavor and aroma possible.
Add to cooked fruits and relishes, poached fish, and braised meats. Uses include Caribbean Jerk seasonings, Palestinian dishes, Middle Eastern stews, German sausages, English cakes, and American pies.
Anise Seed$4.75 – $15.75
Repairs to the London Bridge were said to be partially paid for by taxes and tolls placed on Anise Seed by King Edward in 1305. In folklore, Anise is believed to stave off nightmares when placed near the bed.
Use in cookies, pastries and bread. Try adding to savory dishes for a layer of warm licorice flavoring.
Apple Pie Spice$7.50 – $24.00
The ultimate expression of an American classic, our Apple Pie Spice features a blend of two different species of Cinnamon, freshly-milled Chinese Ginger, and single-source Madagascan Vanilla Beans. This blend delivers the tangy sweetness and aromatics of a kitchen from a distant past brought forward in memories with the first smell.
A contemporary blend for apple pie, this spice blend is also a smart flavoring added to waffle batter, sprinkled on French toast, mixed with barbeque sauces, or added to recipes with cinnamon or nutmeg.

Cardamom Seed$9.25 – $29.25
Part of the ginger family, Cardamom means grains of paradise. Historically, Cardamom has been used to flavor foods, as an ingredient in perfumes, and even for medicinal purposes.
Known for its sweet and spicy taste, Cardamom seed is used equally in sweet dishes such as breads and cakes and in savory dishes such as meats and curries. Use in baked goods, sprinkle on oatmeal, ice cream, or iced melon, and add to curry. Cardamom has a sharp aroma and distinctive flavor that can be compared to anise or eucalyptus. For a Middle Eastern treat, sprinkle in your coffee.
Cinnamon ~ Ceylon$6.75 – $21.75
Ceylon – the true Cinnamon, scientifically speaking – has a mellow, citrusy flavor & a woodsy, floral aroma; more subtle with less of a bite than Cassia. Hailed for health benefits & considered more precious than gold in ancient Egypt.
Perfect for dishes with few competing flavors, such as custards, puddings, baked fruits and whipped cream, or simply sprinkled on oatmeal, yogurt or toast. Use also in sauces and curries, and add to lamb and vegetable dishes.
Cinnamon ~ Indonesian Cassia$5.50 – $18.00
The Greek poet, Sappho, referenced Cassia in 7th century B.C. Though not the “true” Cinnamon, Cassia (also called Chinese Cinnamon) is often sold as Cinnamon in the U.S., where it’s preferred for its strong, spicy and lingering flavor.
Use in both sweet and strong savory dishes: candies, baked goods, meats, preserves, curries, and hot beverages. Cassia, with its intense aromatic qualities and taste, is the popular choice for Cinnamon Rolls.
Cinnamon ~ Saigon Cassia$6.50 – $21.00
Saigon Cinnamon (aka Vietnamese Cinnamon) is the strongest and sweetest species of Cinnamon available. Ours is freshly milled from organically grown quills to get the most intense flavor possible. Holds up to Vietnamese Pho and full-flavor meats; makes a great addition to yogurt; or ratchet up your baking with this powerful, nearly hot cinnamon flavor.
- Add 1-2 tsp Saigon Cinnamon to 1 cup Straus Family Organic yogurt.
Cloves$6.25 – $20.50
Despite attempts at clove monopolies, by the 18th century cloves were grown in many places including Brazil, Tanzania, and Madagascar. The whole Clove looks much like a nail, hence its French namesake, “clou” (nail).
Use in pastries, puddings, cooked fruits, and cakes, or sprinkle on oatmeal for a treat. Also yummy in stews and vegetables. Pairs well with nutmeg, cinnamon and ginger.
